Allders Opticians

Over a century of experience



Allders Opticians has been in business since 1905 when the founder, Percy Allder, took up retail premises in Luton and opened as an Optician and Jeweller. In the late 1920s the jewellery side of the business was sold and a second practice in Luton was set up. Mr Allder retained his interest in the company until the late 1950s.

The group recently became part of the Rodenstock group, one of the global leaders in premium quality lens and frame manufacturing. The current portfolio of 11 branches is spread throughout the Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire areas, with the administrative offices in Northfleet, Kent. With a programme of refits being rolled out across the group, Allders Opticians are truly combining heritage and modernity.
